The mission of this Chapter is to reinforce the objective of the Society of Professional Fire Protection Engineers. The Chapter will define, develop, and advance the use of engineering best practices; expand the scientific/technical knowledge base; educate the global fire safety community in order to reduce fire risk.


Are you looking to get more involved in the Southern California chapter of SFPE? Come to our events! Our members and visitors always enjoy our monthly meetings. Join one of our planning committees and volunteer your time!

We have a committee for administration, relationships, scholarship, symposium, golf tournament, social media, annual audit, nominations, and the budget!


Does your company want to sponsor the monthly chapter meeting? You will be given 5 minutes at the start of the meeting to talk about your company and what you specialize in. The cost of the sponsorship will be $150. Sign up on the event page!


The Executive Board is so excited to have hosted a few in-person chapter meetings again. Thank you so much for joining us. Join us for the May meeting in order to vote for the next Board Members!!!
